Meet me and Arthur!!

Hey everyone! I live in New York about an hour north of the city. I've been riding for about 11 years and just this past April, I got my first horse! Well I share him with a really good friend but I mostly ride him, etc.

Arthur is a 17 year old Hanoverian/TB cross standing about 16/2hh. We heard about him by word of mouth and actually over looked him because of his age and they said he was ring sour(which he isn't!! :) ). We finally went to Bedford to go meet him and about a week later I went back to actually ride him on a trail ride and he was awesome. A week later he came to our barn!

It's been 9 months since we've gotten him and I absolutely adore him and he has given me so much confidence out on the trails and in the show ring! He was the first horse I've ever shown and now I can't wait till the spring to start showing again!

Anyway here are some pictures of Arthur!

OH and you will see in some of the pictures his blue roan sock!! I've never seen it before on a bay horse.

And we only paid $100!!!

He actually came from Canada. He was a show jumper up there but I guess he didn't meet the standards for what they wanted so he was brought here to NY. Where he was moved from barn to barn and then his previous owner found him and only did trail riding/hunter paces with him. And now he is with us He has two shows names... The Artful Dodger and Art Deco. We decided we like Art Deco better so thats what we use now when needed!

What a beautiful horse! I look forward to your postings, you sound like a welcome addition to the HF Family :)

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

what a cutie! It's amazing what treasures you can find when you aren't really looking for them, isnt it?

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
